One for the Writers

It starts with a thought, a word, an idea
scratched upon the page…
pulled from the pit, the well, the abyss, the cache
within my head—
prompted by image, an event, an emotion
from something felt or read.
Layer upon layer we build the tale
into something we can share
Then post the words, forevermore—
that all might find them there.


Here’s to the ones who feel compelled
to express what’s in their souls;
whose compulsion borders on obsession,
whose writing makes them whole.
You compose the notes to a symphony
and we, the eager reader, hear the song.
We are swept away by your music,
and in the words find common bond.
